Sweden is currently one of the hottest places for poker. Currently they rank number 2 in the world when it comes to the best online players in the world. Of the many big names that have come out of this snowy country, few recognize Anton Herrmann.
The Swedish international is one of Sweden's best kept secrets. He's been on the rise in the rankings since he first started playing and was even ranked number 1 in the world in 2014. His winnings ways began back in 2012 when he started winning some of the big tournaments online. This would skyrocket him to the top of the leaderboards in a very short time.
Herrmann goes by the moniker VnilaVader at most online poker rooms, but can also be found under the name MORTIIIIIII or mrbrat. He has won a total of $3 million online with over 2,300 cashes. His largest cash was a $109,000 cash in 2014.
He would have a good 2014, winning multiple tournaments. He first won the 888.com Mega Deep Stack tournament for $33,000. In the same month, he won the Winamax high roller event. A few months later he would have his best result of his career by winning the FTOPS 2 day event for $109,000. The tournament had over 5,500 players.
Among his many results, he has won the prestigious Triple Crown award 4 times. The Triple Crown is when you win 3 tournaments on 3 sites in a single week. This is no easy accomplishment. Most players wish to win a 1 tournament in their lifetime. Well, Herrmann has won 3 in a week 4 times!
While Herrmann has good results online, his live results are, well, let's just say pretty much nonexistent. To his credit, he hasn't played but a handful live, so his results in this area can't be a credit to his actual talent.
